30 Essential Max Martin Songs

The thought came to me in a drug store. Or a department store. Or the backseat of a taxicab. I don't remember where it was, exactly, except that it was the type of place where, in 2015, one might hear Taio Cruz's 2010 hit "Dynamite" playing in the periphery. That is to say: anywhere i… More »

Watch Drake, Haim, & Sia Read Mean Tweets About Themselves On Jimmy Kimmel

The Week In Pop: The History Of Kesha Vs. Dr. Luke

When Kesha and Dr. Luke traded lawsuits earlier this week -- Kesha alleging a decade of sexual, physical, and verbal abuse, Luke alleging that she made it all up in an attempt to get out of her contract -- the rotten core of one of this decade's most successful pop partnerships was ripped open and… More »

The Week In Pop: Get Used To Calvin Harris Being The Biggest DJ In The World

Calvin Harris is the biggest DJ in the world. This is true in terms of dollars (he's Earth's highest-paid party-rocker, by an even larger margin than last year) and human bodies (he appeared to draw the most massive crowd at Coachella this year). "Summer," a song he sung himself, hit the US top 10 and… More »

Hear Two Dev Hynes Demos Written For Britney Spears

As Blood Orange, Dev Hynes is an underground pop star unto himself. As a songwriter and producer, he helped Solange and Sky Ferreira find their own kinds of cool-kid stardom, and he's worked with a ton of very good artists in the past few years. Britney Spears, ultimately, is not one of those artists. Spears'… More »

The Week In Pop: So, What Else Does “All About That Bass” Singer Meghan Trainor Have To Offer?

"All About That Bass" is a great song. It is not a cool song, but hopefully by now we all realize cool is not the same thing as great. Meghan Trainor's breakout single, which celebrates the sex appeal of larger women, is also not quite as smart or important as Trainor thinks it is --… More »

Here’s Weird Al’s New Polka Medley Covering Miley Cyrus, Daft Punk, Macklemore, & More

Stereogum founder Scott Lapatine has noted several times lately that the polka medleys have always been the best part of Weird Al Yankovic's albums, and he might have a point. Basically, in addition to numerous parodies and originals, Yankovic always stitches together a string of pop hits covered as ebullient traditional polka tunes; Here's aMore »

The Week In Pop: Ain’t Paramore Fun?

The question is not so much "How did Paramore end up on American Idol?" as "Why did it take them so long to get there?" As I explained at length last month, the Warped Tour scene that carried Hayley Williams and company to stardom was very much a pop star delivery system, and if anyone… More »

The Week In Pop: Meet The New Wave Of British Pop Stars

We at Stereogum have the UK on the brain this week. And while there's a big difference between "Britpop" and "British pop," this seems like an appropriate time to point out just how many singers from the motherland have been making waves on these shores.

Britney Spears – “Work Bitch (Azealia Banks Remix)”

As we've discussed here before with regard to Azealia Banks's beat-borrowing, this is absolutely common ground rap business. It's why this year eight million rappers made their own version of Migos' "Versace." But we all already know that Banks is playing a different ballgame than most other rhyme-slingers and that includes who she pilfers backing… More »

Music’s 10 Most Scandalous Live-TV Moments

When M.I.A. held up her middle finger during Madonna's Super Bowl Halftime Show last weekend, she dominated blog chatter for a few days and incited a few minor cable-TV debates. She could have to pay a fine, and she's definitely changed the narrative around her next album. But she hasn't gotten anywhere near the pantheo… More »

Britney Spears – “Till The World Ends (Korallreven Version)”

The last time that Korallreven, those Sweden-based Balearic bliss mongers behind the Victoria Bergsman-featuring "Honey Mine," excerpted a forthcoming mixtape of theirs with a promotional MP3, it was in fact "Honey Mine." And "Honey Mine" was good! So, you know, hear this: Up until now, "Till The World Ends" has existed as a great po… More »

SALEM Remix Britney Spears

A man named Nostradamus Lou Barlow once sang: "Started smoking pot / Thought things sounded better slow / much slower." Witch house provocateurs SALEM heeded his advice -- and "Justin Bieber 800% Slower," etc. -- in their dragged-out remix of Britney Spears' "Till The World Ends." They also made a video to go along with… More »
